What are the cookies?

A cookie is a small text file saved on the users' device by the browser. Cookies do not harm your files or your device in any way. Cookies are divided into persistent cookies and session cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your device for a pre-defined period of time, after which they are erased, either automatically or when you delete cookies from your browser. Session cookies remain on your device only for the duration of your visit to our online services and are deleted when you close the browser.

Data collected with cookies include the IP address, the type of browser and device, and the browsing country, among other things. Cookie data will not, however, enable us to identify you, and we do not pair cookie data with any personal data that is possibly collected in a different context.

What types of cookies do we use and why?

We use cookies to assess content usage and to compile statistics about the use of the website in order to improve the user experience. This data may be used to define where the visitors come from, what content is viewed and for how long. This information cannot be used to identify a visitor as an individual.

We also use cookies to improve user experience and to track the usage of our online services as well as to build better services. Additionally, we measure the appeal of our services and sites.

Marketing Cookies: These cookies help us make the content of the website as personalized as possible, and thereby show e.g. targeted advertisement and content based on prior online behaviour. Aidian uses marketing cookies managed by third parties in order to present its products both on its own website and on the websites of third parties. Social media cookies are used to enable integration of social media into the website, so that you can immediately like or share a page or product on your favourite social media service. Our websites may include links and connections to third party websites, products and services as well as so called community plugins of third parties (such as LinkedIn and Twitter). The third-party plugins integrated into the Aidian website are downloaded from third-party servers and thus the third-party may install their own cookies on the user’s device. These third-party services and applications offered on Aidian’s website are subject to the privacy policies or notices of such third parties. We recommend you review such third-party privacy policies or notices.

Third-party cookies and data collected

In addition to our own cookies in our online services, we use third-party cookies. Third parties are able to identify the user with cookie data collected by third parties. Third-party services are subject to their own cookie and privacy policies, and, consequently, Aidian is not responsible for third-party collection and handling of data.

We may allow social media plug-ins in our online service so that you can, for example, visit our social media pages and use the share buttons. These services are subject to the Terms of Service of the social media service provider. Here you can find the Terms of Service for services such as Google, Facebook, Twitter and
YouTube.
